In this video, bestselling author and entrepreneur Seth Godin outlines a common creative affliction: sabotaging our projects just before we show them to the world. Godin targets our "lizard brain" as the source of these primal doubts, and implores us to "thrash at the beginning" of projects so that we can ship on time and on budget.

I just encountered this today, and I think it speaks volumes about how the way we are constructed as human beings profoundly influences the way we create our reality.

Note that Seth uses the term ship as a metaphor to refer to what we might call manifesting. The motto of the website where this video is posted is: "It's not about ideas, it's about making ideas happen."
